FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 20 April 2020
Bend, Oregon. Sonder Scheme today announced a new product, Sonder Scheme Studio. Sonder Scheme Studio is a complete system for designing human-centered artificial intelligence and offers a new way for designers, product managers, software developers and technology ethicists to design AI.
“We know that people want to create AI that works for humans, is ethical and responsible,” says Helen Edwards, Co-founder at Sonder Scheme. “Our product is the only end-to-end design system that takes account of the unique aspects of designing AI that humans want.”
Features and benefits of Sonder Scheme Studio include:
- Design thinking-style, customized, step-by-step instructions for applying human-centered design to AI, including detailed canvases and frameworks for designing AI interactions and relationships.
- Templates, posters and workbooks that make distributed team collaboration easy and are customized for the technical and ethical considerations of AI.
- Easy-to-understand overviews and tools for people new to AI and technology ethics.
“Helen and Dave have a unique understanding of AI technology, its business opportunities and its effect on people and society,” says Kevin Delaney, former Co-CEO and founding editor of Quartz. “They have a knack for pulling disparate pieces together in a way that helps people see the bigger picture.”
“We’ve created unique design thinking tools that turn AI ethics principles into design practices,” says Dave Edwards, Co-founder at Sonder Scheme. “Our Studio provides the tools people need to design human-machine systems that preserve human agency and enhance diversity and inclusion.”
Sonder Scheme Studio will be available starting 20 April 2020, at US$199 per year per subscriber. For more information on Sonder Scheme Studio visit https://sonderscheme.com/studio.
